  2. Then, gradually add glutinous rice flour into the hot water with sugar (by batches). Continue mixing well until all ingredients are incorporated and no lumps left. Strain it if needed to have a smooth finishing.
  3. Grease a round pan with enough oil or cover base with baking paper for easy unmolding. Pour the mixture to the greased pan
  4. Prepare steamer and let water boil first before starting to steam. Steam for 1 hour over medium heat. Do a toothpick test if it’s cook. It should come out clean when inserted in the center. Don’t forget to cover your pan with clean cloth to prevent water drippings on mixture.
